People being better to others in and out of game should be the focus .
Basically he says "Damn Scotts, you ruined Scotland!"
...Classic has a clear vision? Classic doesn't even know what the vision of a single class or spec is. It's designed as if someone was throwing darts at a board.
I heard Intrepid studio is hiring...
That tweet is gold! Apparently, he never met Rextroy before addressing the issue!
Love all the people hating him. Same people who created this mess in the first place. Just because they were in charge or even lead certain area's of the project does not mean their at fault. When they leave citing things not going well and not happy with how it turned out it seems pretty damn honorable.
I look forward to his own game eventually dethroning Wow.-_-I mean, he complains that the modern game isn't centered around the player?We've just spent several expansions AS the center of each expansion. If I hear a bad Scottish pronunciation of CHAMPION! again any time in the next 15 years it'll be too soon.Sounds like he should've left years ago, and let someone who enjoys the game have the paycheck.
he said "in classic, the vision of the game is very clear" and afirms that isnt the same thing now. But maaaaan, they've changed everything. He also says that the spells added or removed was his job with some other guy... cmon, I think we already know why the game took this way, with no actual build, a system that you are forced to have a "SPECIALIZATION", cmon guys... that sucks.and now, that the !@#$ was done, he leaves =). But I dont think it was all his fault, I think a BIG amount of guilty will rest at Ion's shoulders, and yes, he sucks.
I think the idea that MMOs should specifically provide social features tends to ignore that some of the biggest differences between 2006 and 2020 are in communication technologies. Voice Chat and even Video Chat have become ubiquitous. Social networking sites went from being niche to household names with commercials on TV.If you want to keep up with your friends, why only form a Guild on WoW when you can create a Facebook group? If you want to chat with someone, why do so over WoW Voice Chat when you can use Discord and talk to people who are both in and out of game?
This video makes me so sad, because i think it's how a lot of people feel about the game. And instead of it moving back in that direction he felt he had to leave because it isn't.
game will never get better until Ion is gone.
People gotta let go of Classic WOW, its alot different than when it was in 2004 and the people who did not play it in 2004 will never experience what it was then. Guilds and progression back then took more time than it does in Classic, we didnt have what we have now and it took time to get. Time and internet, the guides, guilds, rep, attunements have progressed and alot easier to obtain. In 2004-TBC you couldnt live without frost gear on, in Classic - meh dont really need it. Moral is time has changed, trying to relive 2004 through Classic is just a shell. Guilds arent going to be like they were in 2004.The devs do have alot of 'ideas' that dont mesh, to me this seems like "I wanna do this, but my boss wont let me". Shadow Priests turned out really good, really powerful, maybe he should have just changed over to the Shaman section and help them out a bit. Seems some classes are very simple and dps really well, while other classes require to smash 5+ buttons and still do no damage. For instance Enhance shamans need to rid some buttons or have stuff baked in, make lava lash actually do something and feral...oof. I can go on about enhance and its not even my main class.Blizz devs have changed from expansion to expansion and some have liked the Flex raiding to get people that usually get carried..er..casuals to experience raiding, unfortunately that got out of hand and now any joeschmoe can experience any part of the game at any level as long as they have gold. To rid this is to get rid of Raid Finder for one, get rid of M+ carry or make it harder for a fresh 60 to stand at the door while its 4 manned, bring attunements back (renown is sorta an attunement, I suppose), make it harder to get gear in one day, I miss the days where I had to go in Mechanar week after week for Sun-Eater just to get into Kara.
